One of the most recent products from the Netherlands’ Ontwerpduo (whose fabulous designs I’ve featured twice before) is the Leona Lantern. A suspended pendant lamp in two models that actually acts like a designer nightlight in the dark.
The lanterns, which come in either ‘wide’ or ‘tall’, look like clean modern cream colored shaded pendant lamps during the day. At night, in darkness, they appear to glow with geometric designs which linger for up to 8 hours. That’s because the FSC papershade is screen-printed with a special ink that charges itself throughout the day as well as from the light of the lamp. And it only takes five minutes to charge itself up.
